While I agree with you that the food pyramid of the late 60's/early 70's had a lot to do with selling certain products, everyone followed it and
some people stayed healthy and some did not. It's all about the genes.
Some people who smoke live to be 100 years old, some die at 35. Again the genes.
People will consume what they want..period. Good for them, bad for them, on a diet, off a diet.
Have the problem is that the media changes what we should be eating on a regular basis. Eggs are good for you on week, the next week they are bad for
A glass of red wine with dinner for the tanons. Supposed to be good for you. A glass of wine every day and most say you're an alcoholic.
Live life, be happy. It's not up to you to save me or anyone else. Life is all about the choices that we all make, as you know.
I happen to love bacon and eggs on a regular basis. My cholesterol is great as is my BP, and I'm in my 40's and I smoke.
Like I said, it's all about the genes.
